Maybe I'm not such a crankypants

So I haven't been able to watch sitcoms for years, and I've been feeling really angry lately (though it's been easing up a little, I think). Not much has really made me laugh.

Reading a fanfic that made passing reference to a Canadian cereal, I followed the link at the end of the story just out of curiosity. I mean, "Shreddies" sounds like a pretty dull foodstuff, don't you think?

I'm an American in New England; I'd never heard of the cereal, much less seen any promotions for it. Yet a few seconds after seeing the main page of that website, I was laughing out loud, and I couldn't stop laughing when I clicked through. Maybe it helps that I wasn't expecting anything of the kind, so it was as much surprise as anything else and my saying even this spoils much it ... or maybe it really is funny enough to overcome my moodiness. I'm not gonna complain either way; I just offer it here for anyone else who wants at least a smirk.
